Lady Warriors dominate HWIAC play in first half of season

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

Waterdown District High School's Lady Warriors have set the bar this season for all comers, finishing the first half of their season undefeated and tied for first place with Ancaster. The only blemish on their near-perfect record was a 2-2 tie with the Royals, with whom they share top spot in HWIAC play.

The Warriors shut out the Highland Hawks 5-0 in their last game before the Christmas break. Lindsay Harrison notched a hat trick, while Alyssa Stanisz and Brooklyn Winch added singles in the win.

In six games, the Warriors have allowed just two goals, thanks to a defence led by Brook and Carly Winch, Shylah MacIntyre, Christie Culotta, Steph Crosier and Michelle Noiles.

In a tight contest against Parkside, Waterdown finally defeated the Panthers for the first time in six years, 2-0. Centre Alysha Goencz opened the scoring in the second period and Jackie Henderson-Briehl scored midway through the third period to put the finishing touch on the long awaited victory. Former Warrior Meghan Dunn, who now dresses for Parkside, was checked closely all through the game by the Warrior defence.

The Warriors also ended the Ancaster Royals' scoring streak, thanks to Chelsea Cockshutt's work between the pipes. In fact, the Royals came up blank against Waterdown until there were only about three minutes left on the clock. But Waterdown's Henderson-Briehl had already scored on a slap-shot just seconds before, and Culotta followed up with a marker of her own 20 seconds later on a breakaway. Ancaster came right back to score on a screen shot with just 37 seconds left in the game, which ended in a tie, 2-2.

The Warriors defence was in high gear throughout the first half of the season, dominating the ice in a 12-0 victory over Highland, a 7-0 win over Westdale and a 1-0 win over Saltfleet. The line of Harrison, Tonya MacRae and Henderson-Briehl leads the forwards, which includes Rhonnie Cockshutt, Stanisz and Kelly Harrison, and also a third line of Goencz, Elyse Dymtrik and Sara Weemhoff. Each of these linemates has contributed at least one goal so far this year.

The attackers are balanced by reserves Darcy Shea, Cara MacRae and Maranda Anderson.The Warriors' goaltending has also been outstanding, with Cockshutt and Brittany Arsenault earning 5 shutouts in six games.

The Warriors continue action on January 11 at North Wentworth Arena at 3:30 p.m.
